One snowy day Pooh and Piglet decide to build a house for Eeyore. But Eeyore already has a house, and now he's very puzzled because it seems to have disappeared. This story first appeared in A. A.Milne's The House at Pooh Corner, accompanied by E. H. Shepard's original illustrations. Milne's classic children's stories - featuring Piglet, Eeyore and, of course, Pooh himself - are both heart-warming and funny, teaching lessons of friendship and reflecting the power of a child's imagination like no other story before or since. Whether you're 5 or 55, Pooh is the bear for all ages.

Who operates the heavy machinery required for construction? What are the duties and skills of a contractor, carpenter, mason, or electrician? What makes the walls and ceiling stand, and how does the roof keep the rain out? Readers will take an eye-opening look at home construction, learning what houses are made of and who builds them. The process is engagingly summarized in the steps of building a house.

Hope into Action, a charity founded by Ed Walker has a vision – of the church at the forefront of the fight against homelessness. Since 2010 it has worked in partnership with churches to supply homes, support, friendship and love for the homeless and marginalized, earning the Guardian’s Public Service Award in 2017 and an award from the Centre for Social Justice. Here, Ed tells his story of faith and struggle as he and his wife Rachel stepped out in faith, developed a new theology of sharing and saw both tragic and wonderful outcomes. Visionary, inspiring and touching, Ed’s experiences show how we can meet and grow in Christ as we interact with those in the shadows and those hidden in darkness.

House Built on Ashes

But there is no easy passage into this brighter future. Poignant and lyrical, House Built on Ashes contemplates the promises, limitations, and contradictions of the American Dream.

The year is 2009, and José Antonio Rodríguez, a doctoral student at Binghamton University in upstate New York, is packing his suitcase, getting ready to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with his parents in South Texas. He soon learns from his father that a drug cartel has overtaken the Mexican border village where he was born. Now, because of the violence there, he won’t be able to visit his early-childhood home. Instead, his memories will have to take him back. Thus, Rodríguez begins a meditative journey into the past. Through a series of vignettes, he mines the details of a childhood and adolescence fraught with deprivation but offset by moments of tenderness and beauty. Suddenly he is four years old again, and his mother is feeding him raw sugarcane for the first time. With the sweetness still on his tongue, he runs to a field, where he falls asleep under a glowing pink sky. The conditions of rural poverty prove too much for his family to bear, and Rodríguez moves with his mother and three of his nine siblings across the border to McAllen, Texas. Now a resident of the “other side,” Rodríguez experiences the luxury of indoor toilets and gazes at television commercials promising more food than he has ever seen. But there is no easy passage into this brighter future. Poignant and lyrical, House Built on Ashes contemplates the promises, limitations, and contradictions of the American Dream. Even as it tells a deeply personal story, it evokes larger political, cultural, and social realities. It speaks to what America is and what it is not. It speaks to a world of hunger, prejudice, and far too many boundaries. But it speaks, as well, to the redemptive power of beauty and its life-sustaining gift of hope.
